Every week, sister iPhone site FingerGaming
rounds up the top-grossing iPhone and iPod Touch applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.
This week's U.S. iPhone revenue charts see Square Enix's Final Fantasy
trump EA's Monopoly
and last week's sales leader Plants vs. Zombies
This relatively recently-added chart allows end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.
Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings.
This week's top-grossing U.S. App Store titles are:
1. Final Fantasy
3. Plants vs. Zombies
4. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
5. Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front
6. All-in-1 Gamebox
7. Bejeweled 2
8. Words With Friends
9. Final Fantasy II
10. Rock Band
PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies
ends its two-week run as the App Store's biggest-grossing game title this week. Square Enix's port of Final Fantasy
rises to the top of the charts in its first week of release, as EA's Monopoly
climbs up to second place after recently being featured in an iPhone television advertisement.
Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
overtakes Gameloft's recently released Brothers in Arms 2
in today's sales rankings. Triniti's compilation All-in-1 Gamebox
follows at sixth place, while Bejeweled 2
remains a steady seller at seventh.
Newtoy's Words With Friends, Final Fantasy II
, and EA's Rock Band
close out this week's results, pushing former chart contenders The Sims 3
out of the top ten.
